Sing with us during our incredible 7th Season

What are you waiting for? Join now!

Are you ready to have something special back in your life? Our incredible 7th Season is exactly what you may be looking for!

  • Join a group of people who truly enjoy spending time with each other.

  • Join a chorus in New Jersey whose Community cares and supports one another.

  • Be fulfilled with incredible music-making.


You can experience all of this by participating in Rise Up Chorus!

We are a Community Chorus in New Jersey with a Youth Chorus (for students in grades 3 -8) and an Adult Chorus (for adults and high school students). We rehearse on Friday evenings in the Auditorium at St. Luke's in Metuchen (17 Oak Ave., Metuchen, NJ 08840).

  • Our Youth Chorus rehearses from 5:00 - 6:30pm, and it is directed by Helen Kernizan and accompanied by collaborative pianist Florence Simons.

  • Our Adult Chorus rehearses from 7:00 - 8:45pm, and it is directed by Matthew J. LaPine (our Founder & Artistic Director) and is accompanied by collaborative pianist Florence Simons.


Throughout the season, you'll grow in musicianship, develop your vocal technique, learn rewarding music, and perform with a Community of people who care about you for who you are. As always, no auditions are necessary to join Rise Up Chorus. There is no tuition. No membership fees. Rise Up Chorus is completely sustained by the gifts of our generous Community - donors, members, and grants that allow us to offer you this incredible experience and education.
